How PRP Restores Lost Hair
PRP for hair loss is a surprisingly simple 3-step process. First, blood is drawn in the same manner required by standard medical tests. The blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma, and finally, the PRP is injected into your scalp where hair loss exists.
PRP’s growth factors bring stem cells from bone marrow to infuse the area. Stem cells are blanks that can become whatever the body most needs. For hair loss, they become new scalp cells to create a more fertile landscape for hair growth, and they become new hair follicles. Existing follicles are thickened in the healthier scalp tissue, and new follicles replace what’s been lost. PRP also increases collagen and keratin, the building blocks of the hair cuticle, and improves blood flow. Your hair rebounds and thin spots disappear beneath new, lush locks.
Am I a Good Candidate?
PRP can only stimulate areas where follicles still exist and new hair growth is still possible. For this reason, PRP hair restoration therapy candidates are those with thinning hair rather than bald spots that PRP cannot effectively treat.
